The DP Collection

The Digital Precision Collection was released by Digital Precision Limited at a point shortly before they stopping trading. It was a complete collection of (almost?) everything that DP ever sold and came on 10 floppy discs.

Disc 1 contained a boot program and an unzip utility to allow users to extract the files as everything had been zipped to fit onto as few discs as possible. In an effort to save as much space as possible, manuals did not necessarily come on the same disc as the programs to which they related.

The following tables details the contents of each of the 10 discs and where known, a small description of the program is given. If you have knowledge of the missing descriptions, please feel free to update the tables.
